Merry-Go-Round iiiiiiininiiMiiiiniiiiinniinitMiiniHi By Drew Pearson WASHINGTON - In private but pointed conversations, Russian diplomats have taken a more threatening tone about Viet Nam, They have dropped blunt remarks obviously Intended to reach the White House, that Russia will not stand by if her missile sites in North Viet Nam are bombed. They have also warned that, if President Johnson continues to step up the military pressure on North Viet Nam, Russia will have no alternative but to take a more active part in the defense of a communist ally. Most ominous of all, they have hinted that in a showdown they would be compelled to side with communist China. Any use of nuclear weapons against the Chinese mainland, the Soviets have added grimly, would lead to World War in. The private remarks that Russians drop at diplomatic affairs are studied closely for signs of Soviet intentions. After the first bombs were dropped on North Viet Nam, the Russians pleaded that the attacks made It awkward for them to continue the East-West detente. The Soviets not only pleaded for peace in Viet Nam but worked behind the scenes to arrange a settlement. This was done despite taunts from Peking that the Kremlin was kowtowing to the United States. Unless this policy of seeking peace shows some signs of success, the Russians are now saying, they must change their policy. - o - —BACKLASH IN CARIBBEAN— Considerable opposition to our role in the Dominican Republic is bubbling beneath the surface in the State Department. The complaint heard In the back rooms is that the Marine landing has severely set back the Alliance for Progress, that the communist menace in the Dominican revolt has been exaggerated, and that Latin Ameri- can countries are more disturbed over 30,000 U. S. Marines than 58 communists in the Dominican Republic. The boys In the back rooms are also worried that the Marines won't be able to extricate themselves from the Dominican quagmire and will be stuck on the island for a long stay, no matter how many token troops the United States can persuade other Latin American countries to send in, No one in the State Department doubts that disciplined communists attempted to take over the revolution and to throw the Island into chaos. The reds handed out weapons indiscriminately to the rabble, encouraged them to go on looting sprees and led attacks on the homes of anti-communists. It was also expected that the communists would do their best to infiltrate Into strategic positions. Yet, despite U. S. fears, the communists definitely have not taken over the rebel command. The confidential reports show that the top leaders not only are anti-communist but are American-trained officers. Certainly the average rebel in the street is no communist but looks upon himself as a patriot fighting for freedom. To him, the Marines appear to be fighting not for democracy but to save a military dictatorship. The only way the United States might still win back the confidence of sensitive Latin Americans is to use its influence to re-establish a government of the people in the Dominican Republic. - o - —NEW WAR FRONT ?— The United States is quietly preparing the machinery to rush troops and planes to the defense of Thailand if and when needed. More than 6,000 American military men are already in Thailand. Only 500 serve as military advisers to the Thai armed forces. The rest are preparing ware- houses and equipment for a possible major movement of American military into Thailand. Note - The communist-trained Huks, supposed to be cleaned out of the Philippines, are reported to be active again in some of the outlying islands. - o - -U. S. ARMS IN D. R.- Dominlcan loyalists and rebels both have been killing each other with weapons made in the USA and paid for by the American taxpayers. The United States has supplied the Dominican Republic with $12,100,000 worth of arms since 1953 - the beginning of the Eisenhower administration. President Truman had sent some arms to Dictator Trujillo, and there was no excuse for continuing the arms flow indefinitely. - o - —OUR ALLIES' SfflPS— The Longshoreman's Union has compiled a list of more than 200 foreign ships that have delivered military supplies to the North Vietnamese port of Haip- hong or to the Viet Cong's main supply port - Pnompenh, Cambodia. If these ships later should stop at American ports, American dockworkers will be urged by union leaders not to load them. On the list are ships from Belgium, Britain, France, Holland, Italy, Japan and West Germany - all allies of the United States. - o - -LBJ RELENTS-When President Johnson was first invited to address the U. S. Chamber of Commerce this year, he not only turned it down, but used rather vigorous, unrepeatable language to describe Walter Carey, the Chamber's outgoing president. Johnson was sore over Carey's sniping at administration policies. However, the President cooled down, thought better of his refusal, and showed up at the chamber convention anyway, -o- ' -CONGRESSIONAL EGGS-Rj&p. Charles Bennett, D-Fla., asked Dr. Lowell Yadon of Walter Reed Hospital if the X-ray showed that the bone in Bennett's broken Wed At Whittemore a set-in midriff and the back waistline was decorated with a fabric bow.

"I doubt it," replledDr. Yadon. "I always thought diet was important in such matters," said Bennett. "As a farm boy In Florida, I used to feed cracked oyster shells to hens to Improve their eggs." Yadon thought this over momentarily, then asked the Florida Congressman: "Are you figuring on laying any eggs 7" - o - —LUCKY POSTMASTERS— Elliott Roosevelt, second son of the late FDR, now running for Mayor of Miami Beach, Fla., figures that Postmasters General are good luck. In 1938 Elliott attended the Kentucky Derby with Postmaster General '-•••"• Want to startle a few Ford and Chevy dealers?
